Package installation question


Can you install/copy packages via drag and drop from one install of Atom to another?

Or do they always need to be “installed”?


Yes you should be able to copy/paste most packages without issues, the only case that may not work if when you attempt to copy a package that have node module that relies on binaries, in that case you’ll have to run apm install in the package directory to make sure the binaries was compiled for your configuration.
